As my mother is a keen fan of the Harry Potter series, I decided to do the Harry Potter Tour when I was in Oxford this summer. Although this tour is quite pricey (£15), I enjoyed it very much. Rina is a fantastic tour guide! She knows how to spice up the general information with amusing titbits and makes the... More

We joined the free walking tour led by Joel. He was knowledgable, had a great store of tales of the city and added some colour from his own recent stint as a student. The tour moves along at a pace and covers a lot of ground. It really does take two hours and takes in so much of this beautiful... More

We are a family of four with two teenage children. Our kids both loved this tour with Tom (as did we). They rated this the best tour of our five week tour of Europe and we have been on a couple!!!! We learnt a lot about Oxford, it's colleges and history. Tom also had some great one liners as well.... More

We had a wonderful time today being shown aroundOxford by Joel who was so charming and funny and his stories were both captivating and interesting, even for our 10 year old son who also loved it! Well done! We will be back and can't recommend you highly enough!

How lucky we were to have a great sunny day and to find Footprints. Quite amusing that 5 minutes before the start time there was no one and then suddenly there were 40 or so from all around the world. We could not have asked for a better guide that Joel who was a natural and amusing speaker and really... More

Thouroughly enjoyed walking around Oxford city/colleges with Tom. He is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a born entertainer and storyteller. I can highly recommend this tour with Tom.
